Tens of thousands of deaf children are being let down

Steve Reed MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children, commenting on new analysis by the National Deaf Children’s Society, which shows deaf children are falling behind at every stage of school, said “Tens of thousands of deaf children are being let down at every level by a government that has allowed deaf education to fall into crisis.

“No society that loves its children should treat them like this. The government must learn the lessons of this report and make Britain’s children their priority rather than tax cuts for the super-rich.

“The next Labour government will end the cuts and ensure all of our young people get the best start in life.”
